  • Programme Description

    The MA in Art, Law and Economy aims at exploring and highlighting the functional interdependence between art, law and the economy. Particular emphasis will be placed upon the legal, financial and political considerations and the corresponding regulatory approaches implemented in Europe and elsewhere concerning the creation of works of art, the art trade, the operation of the markets concerned, the function of intellectual property law at the EU and international level, the protection of cultural heritage and protection against unlawfully acquired works of art.
